Re: EMTF Breakfast Presentation

May 6th, 2020, 7:45am
Online Presentation

Hello EMTF Colleagues,
I hope everyone has adjusted to the new normal of home-work life. With everyone increasingly in self-isolation or practicing social distancing, I think it is important to continue to facilitate digital alternatives to social interaction. We are using the EMTF monthly sessions to bring some sense of community amongst fellow energy management practitioners and enthusiasts. It is more important than ever for us to support each other and continue the community that we have created. For these reasons, we are continuing to hosti the EMTF sessions as an online presentation.

Title :Deep Building Retrofits for Energy and Carbon
This presentation will provide case studies of major renovation and retrofit projects that are targeting very low energy and operational carbon emissions. The case studies will provide background on the projects, as well as specific technical details on how low energy and carbon can be achieved in a major renovation project.
